The Ensign continues with Part 4 of a five-part series featuring paintings and photographs of sites and events associated with the life of the Lord Jesus Christ. This month we focus on the final week of his mortal ministry—the days in Jerusalem and vicinity that culminated in his death on the cross and his resurrection from the tomb.
The paintings are by Harry Anderson, noted living American illustrator of the life of Christ, and by David Roberts, a British artist who visited the Holy Land in 1839–1842 and produced many drawings and lithographs of scenes there. Roberts’ work, though romanticized in some aspects, offers a rare view of what the Holy Land might have looked like before the modernization of the twentieth century.
Some of Harry Anderson’s paintings are printed courtesy of the Church; others are printed courtesy of the Pacific Press Publishing Association, for whom Mr. Anderson has painted many illustrations.
The photography is from Church Educational System (CES) photographers.
